How does one go from concept to manufacturing ready design for leather goods?

Let's say a wallet (not the actual product, but close enough).

Have working in print design, but never comp'd and spec'd something like this. Could play with some materials for a prototype and get the basics down, but will still need a working knowledge to communicate with manufacturing.

Manufacturers are usually pretty helpful as to what types of specs they're capable of accepting. Thomasnet is generally quite good for finding manufacturers.
